Baked Steelhead Trout Filets is an easy Lent recipe! If you like the taste of salmon then you will also like this recipe. However this particular trout has more of a "fishy" taste, but it is not bad. I do not like fish that tastes really "fishy" and I did like this dish. I was apprehensive when the gentleman at the Seafood counter at Kroger's recommended. But I am glad I ventured and tried it.
For the Lent season or if you feel like having a seafood recipe be sure to try Baked Steelehead Trout Filets. They are inexpensive and will feed a crowd. I served rice pilaf with our fish but next time I will serve some Roasted Broccoli instead.

- 1 ½ tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary or dried
- 1 zest lemon
- ½ whole lemon juice

- Prepare a baking or roasting pan by lining it with foil and brushing it with olive oil.

- Mix together all remaining ingredients except fish into a well-blended paste.
- Place fish skin-side down (if it has skin) on baking sheet, then spread seasoning over flesh.
- Broil fish at second rack away from heat for 5 minutes or less, just enough to sear flesh but not burn herbs.

- Serve with steamed vegetables or rice.
